If you have a tig the hard part is over-some weld els, a cutoff NA flange, some Tees, a hole saw, some scrap 3/8 steel, and a drill will make you a nice manifold. Doesn't even have to be equal length (even though we all know you will get it within .050" if you go that route)

Have you brazed before? When running a tig fire your arc, get the base metals to puddle, and then melt the filler into it. You won't go back!

Probably 20 hours assuming oyu have a vise, torch, and enough bench space to clamp things down. If you're working in the back of a truck like me at least 80 hours
